  • Some bonehead left threader oiler bucket out in rain

    To save expensive cutting fluid, I could use My oil suction gun to suck all water from bucket bottom. Any problem with this oil after ! Thanks, The BONEHEAD

    put it in a bell jar and pull a vacuum on it aand boild the water off.

    Seriously though, if there is only a little water left in there I don't see too much to worry about. you'll hear some fried eggs when you cut threads as the water boils out of the oil. just get out as much as your can. isn't the pickup on the oiler raised off the bottom a bit so it won't pull water in?

        I had a large quaintly of hydraulic oil that had water in it, I drained it out (discovered I did not have oil on hand), so I boiled the oil until the water was no longer, this was 30 or 40 gallons of oil, but I would guess taking the oil up to 250F would not hurt the oil, but would boil off the water,

        I would pour off the majority of the oil first and then just boiled or dispose of the bottom oil.

          Use a siphon to minimize stirring up the soup. Alternately, you can run the oil through a water separator designed for diesel fuel systems.

            tool, it's a gallon of oil in there. $15.00 and you're good to go.

            a little water will cause the heated threads to sizzle. but remember you're not using the machine for production so it shouldn't be a big issue.

            i would wash out the entire pot and hose assy, gun with solvent and put in fresh oil. $15.00 of oil is cheaper than $100. a pop for a die.
